Groundbreaking LGBTQ Drama Rotterdam Is Coming To Manchester This Pride Month

It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay.

Following a critically acclaimed run in London’s West End, groundbreaking LGBTQ play Rotterdam is coming to Opera House Manchester from June 13-15.

It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay. But before she can hit send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian. As Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?

Written by acclaimed playwright Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo. Rotterdam is a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home.

The production has equality and gender diversity at its heart and starts trans non-binary actor Lucy Jane Parkinson as Fiona/Adrian, who will play opposite Bethan Cullinane as Alice. Trans actor Elijah W Harris will play Alice’s lovable brother Josh and Ellie Morris returns to the production to play Dutch partygoer Lelani.

Tickets are priced at £15 for the best seats at all performances. Click here to get yours.
